Mr. A. Baron, 
93c Venner Road, 
Sydenham, 
London SE26 5HU. 

Dear Mr. Baron, 

Thank you for our letter and the enclosures. I enclose a copy 
of the paper on the self-fulfilling prophecy of media information that 
smoking causes illness. I hope you do manage to publish your piece 
on Doll; he would have made a good Jesuit inquisitor. 

I am afraid I can't find what I might have written to or about 
Billig. I remember him accusing me of having given an interview to 
the Beacon, and I pointed out that the interviewer had never mentioned 
the Beacon, but that he was a free-lance who would try and get it into 
the Guardian. I was rather surprised when it appeared in the Beacon, 
or rather when Billig wrote about it having appeared in the Beacon. 
I didn't know anything abnout it of course! 

I also enjoyed your exposure of the "Searchlight" group. It must 
have taken a long time to get all this together! 

All best wishes, 

Yours sincerely, 
\
